That depends on context. If you are watching the movie now, "is" would be the proper verb. If this is a trivia question, "was" would be appropriate.

So the movie was released in.. let's say 1969. And I want to ask a question about the actor, which one is correct:
- Who is the boy playing Jim Beam's son in Beam's Family Adventures?
- Who was the boy playing Jim Beam's son in Beam's Family Adventures?
Should I use past or present to ask this kind of question? I'm confused, please help. Thanks.
